The world is rapidly evolving due mainly to technologies that have changed the way we live and function daily. A few obvious industries are: automobiles, computers, and of course, smart phones. Pretty much every item you can think of for daily use and consumption is ever changing and improving because of technology. Bicycles are no exception with the flourishing trend of electric bikes, including our favorite, the Lopifit– the electric walking bike.
E-bikes have become popular all over the world! Asia has the world’s largest e-bike market, with two hundred million already in use. European countries have always been cyclist enthusiast and electronic cycles are just as big. The Lopifit was developed in Holland and quickly spread with dealers all over Europe and now to the US. The United States has a much smaller e-bike community but increasing daily becoming popular all over the country.
The Back Story: Electric vehicles have been around for over a hundred years. They predate the gasoline driven versions by several decades. Although the first patents for something resembling today’s bicycles date to the 1890s, the modern electric bike is only about 20 years old with most popularity gained in the past few years. The early e-bike suffered from the same issue it’s vintage counterpart did – both used heavy, short-lived and expensive batteries – like lead-acid technology making them heavy, unreliable and impractical.
But thankful to the rapid scaling of laptops, cell phones and other mobile electronic device production, a much lighter and durable battery became affordable – the lithium ion battery. Lopifit bikes are equipped with state of the art Samsung Lithium Ion batteries. Battery packs that used to weigh 20 lbs and provide only a few miles of range now weigh less than 10 lbs and provide up to 50+ miles of range. Finally after a century of being little more than a fringe idea, e-bikes are starting to boom and come into the mainstream. The technology is maturing, and we are starting to consider e-bikes as reliable daily transportation and recreation for the masses.
6 Reasons to Lopifit:
1 – It’s a speedy way to get up to speed! When riding regular bicycles in traffic, one of the biggest sources of anxiety is stopping and starting again – in other words, going from a complete stop (like a red light) to the speed of traffic. This can take a lot of energy, especially if you’re new metro to road cycling and/or a little out of shape. The motor is a great assistant, getting you from 0 to the speed of traffic quickly, meaning you don’t need to worry about holding up the people behind you. If there is traffic, you can ride right past the cars on your Lopifit!
2 –It’s less impact exercise/ commuting! Whether it’s the heat or the end of the day commute, sometimes there is just something about it that drains you. The electric assist is great because you’re still walking, and therefore still doing physical activity, but less physical impact on joints and muscles. So, after that long day your Lopifit bike lets you put in less energy while traveling at the same level of efficiency. The Lopifit bike is also an excellent alternative to riders with injuries and other physical conditions and limitations that prevent traditional cycling, plus there is no uncomfortable seat. The Lopifit is easy and fun to use, and basically any age from 7-70 can ride!
3 – It’s cheaper than a car! Owning a car, especially for a city-dweller, is expensive. For starters, you need to pay for gas. A full tank of gas for your car is expensive, and even if it’s a fuel efficient machine, the costs still add up over time. It can easy cost you thousands or more every year. There’s also parking fees to consider as well as the parking availability. Regular maintenance and repairs can also be very pricey. Regular bike maintenance can be done with mostly household materials and a few cheap additions (like a bike tire pump, for instance). On top of that, if there’s a problem with your car, it often costs hundreds of pounds to cover the repairs. In the USA, the average family spends roughly 1.5% of their yearly income on car repairs. Bike repairs, on the other hand, are much cheaper. While it’s true that if you need to get the engine repaired it can be costly, it’s still cheaper than fixing your car if its engine fails. It’s not just fixing the car that’s expensive; it’s getting one in the first place. Lopifit bikes start at $2,495 made of the highest quality parts with a 2 year warranty and financing available, making this a very affordable alternative.
4- Its Eco-Friendly! The Lopifit bike has a lithium battery charge and for the same efficiency as a car, it produces a fraction of the CO2. It’s an environmentally safe compromise between a car and a bicycle. Besides, Lopifit bikes are considered a type of motorized bike, and those are emission-free.
5 – Its great motivation to exercise! The Lopifit bicycle is actually great motivation for people to work out while enjoying the outdoors. If you’re riding a bike for exercise, you probably plan your route, and most people likely won’t stray too far from home for fear that, if they get too tired, or hot- they’re doomed. After all, if you’re too physically exhausted to keep riding, but you’re 30 minutes from home, you’re going to have a bad time. With the Lopifit, you can ride more strategically, riding for a while, and then cruising with the motor, then walking and higher gears depending on your fitness level, etc…all while enjoying a breeze!
6 – They’re cool! The #1 reason consumers are buying Lopifit is because they’re fun to ride and super cool! Style is one of Professional the main reasons we buy things like bikes, cars, houses, clothes, etc. These are the hottest bikes to hit North America, be sure to get yours and “Walk and Roll”
